Poesi

«With this new day came an explosion of the creative spirit in Greece, producing the architecture, the art, the drama, and the philosophy that have shaped Western civilization ever since. Jason’s harvest of armed soldiers, grown in a day from dragon’s teeth, seems no more miraculous. «What was then produced in art and thought has never been surpassed and very rarely equalled,» wrote the classicist Edith Hamilton, «and the stamp of it is on all the art and all the thought of the Western world.»

From Nicholas Gage, Introduction to The Greek Miracle: Classical Sculpture from the Dawn of Democracy, the Fifth Century B.C.
